Father Andreas Papadimitropoulos is an Orthodox priest in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia. He is assigned to the parish of Saint Catherine in East Malvern, Victoria.

Papadimitropoulos, a married priest with two children, pleaded guilty to one count of indecent assault on August 2, 2002. The victim was a seventeen year old girl who was a regular parishioner at the church in East Malvern. The priest received a two month suspended jail sentence.

Church authorities temporarily suspended Papadimitropoulos from the priesthood and froze his wages for five years as a result of his conviction. He was also prohibited from hearing confessions for a time.
